5 Jack Welch’s Statement Annually out of 10 people; 2 persons should be promoted 7 persons should remain the way they are 1 person (ranked at the bottom) should be fired (Union, 2011)

8 Appreciation for The System Appreciating a system is an understanding of the overall processes involving suppliers, producers, and customers (or recipients/consumers) of goods and services (Management Solutions, LLC, 2010) Feedback plays a significant role for appreciation

9 Appreciation for The System

10 Appreciation for The System & Deming’s Principles “Create constancy of purpose toward improvement of product and service” (Rule 1), (Deming, 1993) “Adopt the new philosophy” (Rule 2), (Deming, 1993) “Cease dependence on inspection to achieve quality” (Rule 3), (Deming, 1993)

11 Appreciation for The System & Deming’s Principles “Break down barriers between departments” (Rule 9), (Deming, 1993) “Remove barriers that rob people in management” (Rule 12), (Deming, 1993)

12 Knowledge of Psychology Deming believes that the most important motivation comes from inside the person Intrinsic motivation is the driving force for people to seek innovation and the improvement Deming indicates that focusing on extrinsic motivational method has a destructive affect on intrinsic motivation (Deming, 1994)

13 Knowledge of Psychology & Deming’s Principles “Drive out fear” (Rule 8), (Deming, 1986) According to Deming’s rule 8; “ People are born with a need for relationships with other people, and need for love and esteem by others” (Deming, 1986) Management by fear as counter- productive in the long term, because it prevents workers from acting in the organization's best interests. (Hillmer, 1997)

14 Theory of Knowledge Knowledge is not possible without theory (Deming, 1993) Theory helps organizations to understand the cause and effect relationship Without theory experience teaches nothing (Maguad, 2010) Practice is permanent with theory

16 Conclusion According to Deming’s deadly diseases, evaluation of performance (annual review) in general has a bad effect on the employee’s moral and the organizational culture as a whole. However, this approach might not be right for all companies at a particular time, but sometimes it might be the right choice at the right time.
